"Add Senator Max Baucus and Rep. Bennie Thompson to Democrats' ethics heap"

Does anyone have a list of these crooks when the dems captured Congress in 2006 when Pelosi commented about more honesty and ethical lawmakers in Washington?

I agree. But we should put them on a cool looking list and have it circulated all over the internet.

Promise: “This leadership team will create the most honest, most open, and most ethical Congress in history” – Speaker-Elect Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Press Release, November 16, 2006

Broken Promise: “Pelosi and other Democrats were on shaky ground with their continuing claims that they are running the House with what she termed ‘great openness and transparency.’ …[B]efore Democrats stake their claims for charting a ‘new direction,’ they should deliver on some of their earlier rhetorical boasts.” – “Majority Ruling,” CongressDaily PM, March 30, 2007

Broken Promise: “It’s a familiar backpedaling pattern emerging early in the new Democratic-controlled Congress. From lobbying reforms to anti-corruption proposals to curbing earmarks, Democratic lawmakers who railed against Republican corruption a year ago have flinched from imposing the harshest standards on themselves.” – “Congress’ Reform Promises Fizzle,” The Politico, May 21, 2007

You might think that these should be ‘added to the Democrat’s ethics heap’, but you couldn’t tell from the article that they are Democrats.
